tentang Tales of the Ages

this is actually a reply to Rique's question. i realized what i wrote was way too long so i decided to post it as a blog post. (im being lazy so i copy-paste the whole thing i wrote)

hey i think i've seen that teaser before! dunno when but must've followed a link from some forum. neway..

i think it looks awesome. love the characters, love the colours, and especially love the editing. i don't think malaysia have a nice proper editing work like that in our animations. maybe u guys can be the first, congrats!

but the characters look a bit awkward when they walk/run (0:21 in the video especially). i suspect the kain batik causing some rigging or animating limitations. but maybe it's just me.

another thing that could improve the looks of both environment and character models.. normal maps. i think some of the 3D models could use a little bit more detailing (ie on the monster and rock cliff's models, in Timun Mas). but yeah.. it could be time consuming.

having said all that.. the videos are teasers after all. so maybe the full shorts will look heaps better? so.. will it be aired on tv or what? seriously, i am extremely curious about TOTA now.

lol im ranting. this reply should be a new blog post :P. neway thanks for ur comment Rique. best of luck to glue studios and hope to see ur works on tv or cinema soon! .. and perhaps break this lescopaque/animosta dominance in our animation industry before they become too big

so if anyone's curious what is the hujung pangkal of this Tales of the Ages animation, here's the video of Glue Studios's Bawang Putih Bawang Merah teaser trailer and Timun Mas teaser trailer.

i think i like Timun Mas a little bit more that the Bawangs :P
